Hi Jim, Just did a double check to see if I had any Nichols in PA. My husband's Nichols clan is all from Virginia and later West Virginia. They pretty much settled in one area and stayed there, Nicholas county and surrounding areas. Some made it out to Kansas for a while but I think they all came back to the mountains.
I found this while searching for my Hunkins clan...I know you said yours are NOT from Groton but maybe a relative? Looks like these are descendents of his that ended up in Waukesha,WI

I will be there as time allows.

Genealogy is still in my genes and I will work out a schedule. -- Former GFS Chuck of AOL Genealogy Forum.
Jim - Is the chat room acting up tonight? I log into the site and it shows that I'm online, but there is nothing showing that says how many are in chat. And when I open it up, it shoots me to offline and I can't get it to put me back online again.
Just wondering if it's the room, or my computer causing the problem. Thanks!
Hi Jim, sorry, I don't think I have any Averys. My Comfort line married into the Eberhard family. They were all pretty much in Lehigh County, PA. I'll keep an eye out, though, and let you know if I find anything!
I did see your picture...you look wonderful! Dean and i will have to make a trip down there to see you! We will also be in town over the July 4th weekend, doing a living history at the PA Monument for the NPS. Maybe we can see you then?
Hi, Thank you for the comments, On KOCH? I am not sure where they are from my grandfather Robert Koch, his Mother Amy Koch, I was named after her and we always had a formal portrait of her in our dining room, I willl call My Grandfather nephew's wife, a Koch and ask what she knows??
No the other Ayer's in our family are in Rochester area. Family Crest question, our (Ayer) family crest has three chevrons on it, but I have been told that also one version has three sailboats on it. Can you or anyone else shed some light on this?
